Course 1, Diary 13: Design a vehicle Part 3


After a weekend of studying chemistry and physics, Monday and the final double lesson of visual arts was to come. I returned to coloring my bicycle, and I finally managed to finish it during the first lesson. I left coloring the dome the last thing, and I really started to feel even more respect towards those who do art on paper and do it very well at that point. On the other hand I’m starting to dislike colored pencils. The next time I buy any pencils, I’m not buying BIC’s pencils. Unless I happen to find wooden pencils among their products, that is.

Anyhow, here is the finished picture. I marked the text spots with numbers on Gimp in order to make translating easier and more understanble to you:

Final Vehicle design picture

Does the text even show in any readable form?

And the text in English:

1: The best materials and design guarantee that the bicycle will not break easily in normal use and that its maintenance is faster, easier and cheaper.

2: The metal parts have been processed with the best and most ecological means of rust protection technics

3: Nature and recyclability have been thought about in the production

4: The decent springing softens bumps.

5: Many different colors and patterns

–Personal, unique patterns orderable

6: -The lock is changeable

-The thief block is settable

7: The comfortable, softened parts make riding more comfortable

8: Charging spots for e.g. a mobile phone

9: The basket can be changed to a bigger model

10: Space for charging etc.

11: The basic model has a chain lock and a thief block

12: Lidded and equipped with a lock

13: The plastic, shape-keeping dome protects from weather, is detachable, and from certain points foldable for entry and conservation

-In an accident it protects more or less, depending on the situation

14: The dynamo’s electric current charges the battery of a 7-led lamp just in case the power is cut off

-The lamp is easily settable

15: Spare batteries, to which the charge can be stored to for later use, are installable

16: Inside the frame of the bicycle are isolated dynamos which form electricity along with the bicycle’s movement

I think this is my worst work on this course at least by its looks. I was not interested in this exercise and I believe my lack of interest shows along with my bad colored pencils and minimal skills. But at least I did what my limited abilities let me do, and it is good enough for me that way.

Some others were practicing picture analysis for next Monday, when we will do such a thing for a “test”. As far as the practice exercise suggests to me, it will be quite easy. I better worry more about passing the physics course than this visual arts course. In the meantime I wrote this entry and prepared the conclusion entry. That’s it.
